….The Beatles appeared at The Cavern Club, Liverpool, for the very first time (as The Beatles), they would go on to make a total of 292 other appearances at the Club. They were paid £5 for this lunchtime appearance and George Harrison was nearly denied admission to play because (shock, horror!) he was wearing jeans!!! Here’s a clip of them playing early live favourite ‘Some Other Guy’ , a top-notch rock ‘n’ roller, written by Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller and Richie Barrett.
